You know what the biggest dam problem is? Winger CAN'T go past the B&B incident because NOBODY will let them. Every interview, no matter which member they interview, gets the same stupid question: "What was it like after you were mocked by Mike Judge on national tv?" I wish that question would become verboten, because it's old, 20 years now, and yet it still comes up. No wonder t

Guns 'n Roses - wasn't much of a fan, was regally p'd when they remade "Live and Let Die". Moreso after some of Axl's stunts. Metallica - I was tolerating them until...well, by my sig line you should figure out who one of my favorite singers is, and thus it goes without saying that I don't put up with them. Several months ago, you probably saw my story about meeting Kip Winger ba

PS: Love the Ladyhawke soundtrack--bad thing was, it really doesn't fit the movie, but hey, Richard Donner gets what Richard Donner wants...(Donner=Director of Ladyhawke). I had to get my CD copy through Crescendo records at a major convention in Baltimore MD. The collection is on my 'want' list. I'd love to find a better copy of Freudiana but it's hard to find.

I may have to double check but I believe Sicilian Defense was after Gaudi, as Parsons & Woolfson were trying to get out of their contract with Arista. The contract basically said that if Arista rejected an album that the contract became null & void, thus freeing Parsons & Woolfson from their contract. They made Sicilian Defense deliberately bad in order for this to happen--well, bad

Husband and I went opening day, and we both enjoyed it. We haven't watched Agents of Shield yet for this week - probably will do it later tonight.

+1 on the call on Witness...that was the best song on Karma, I thought. Sometimes I think that it was a song missed for IV judging by the words... Like this song better than Rat Race, oddly enough. Should have used a classic Mustang instead of the Corvette though in the video. ;)

My husband is a comic book geek. He can tell you what storyline is from what series and when it came out. Sometimes he can recite who the writers and artists were. But I have to remind him to take out the recycle bin and the trash. Go figure. :) We do plan on going to see this though. And we need to catch up with the episodes of Agents of Shield that we have on the DVR too...

Isn't it though? I'd always thought he was older because GWAR has been around forever; I'm only about a year younger. No news as to a memorial or funeral yet. As GWAR was 'Richmond's best export' I'm sure it will be in the news soon.

Being that GWAR is from Richmond VA, my hometown, there was lots of speculation about foul play (he was found by a bandmate dead in his house). However, it seems that it was natural causes.

Another funny M&G thingie...I was standing in line for the annual TSO signing in Hampton (VA). I got to talking to the people in front of me. The guy was a hunter, and he showed me a picture on his cell phone of an 8 point buck that was HUGE that he'd bagged earlier in the day. I told him, "Show that to the blonde guy--that's Chris Caffery--he's a hunter too!" So he did...Chris

Kip Winger & Reb Beach have always been gracious. If Reb knows I'm coming, he'll try to get backstage passes for both me and my husband. The he & hubby can talk video games for hours, LOL. John Roth is kind of quiet & shy, and Paul Taylor AND Rod Morgenstein positively remarked on my writing that I'd done on Kip's old forum (a boost for someone who aspires to be an author some day!)

Always Winger/Kip solo stuff/Reb's solo stuff (more coming soon!). ;) I have bought Queensryche 'cold' too...now I have to watch it. :S Jordan Rudess I bought cold the second time around as I loved 'Rhythm of Time' and did not regret it. So, with the exception of Rudess and Winger (and related), I don't usually buy without at least one listen.

HA! I figured this place would light up like a Christmas Tree once that video came out. :P A bit different, an in-your-face kind of song. It's strong vocally (not that Kip has ever been a wimp in the vocals department), and seeing John and Reb with the guitar riff together warms my wee cold heart. ;) Definitely ordering this...I haven't missed a release date since Pull. :P

What's that they say, that a prophet isn't accepted in his homeland? All Winger shows and Kip's solo shows are always miles away--pun not exactly intended... ;) Either I have to move or get a promotions company started in Virginia to start getting these acts here...

It's dark because (if I remember the story right) a friend of Kip's died as a result of an overdose, and this song was a response to the person's life and how they died. Basically, someone who could have had it all and they just threw it away.

I would have to agree that there probably won't be anything Whitesnake for a while, and I would say probably past September before we even get a hint. My only proof is that 'Better Days Comin' from Winger comes out in the spring (April by some sources), and then comes M3 and the Frontiers festival. Plus the 25th anniversary of the first Winger album promotional stuff too. Reb has also made noi

I still have a grumpy that the Carolina Panthers ~almost~ made it. I've said for the past couple of seasons that Cam Newton is going to be a force, but he needed a team around him. They could have made it if Steve Smith hadn't gotten hurt, and the sad thing is that he's probably close to the end of his career. And to think at the start of the season when the Panthers were 0-3, the locals were

I've been wondering about that myself...last few pix of Winger that I've seen--the promo shots for IV and for the 25th Anniversary tour--they look like a street gang ready to rumble. Which would be nice, say if they were half their age perhaps. To contrast, look at the pix for Kip's solo stuff--in those shots he's wearing a business jacket most of the time, and decent shirts--but still blue jeans

This is also known as: "How to scare the **** out of the main act..." I have weak knees to begin with, and to be fair, I'd had ONE Corona Light (Mexican light beer) before the show. This was in 2004, the Metal Mania Unplugged tour with Kip Winger & Reb Beach in Baltimore, MD. The gang and I made it eventually to the front row, right next to one of those floor level amplifiers.

You all will have a blast, trust me. :) I couldn't afford to go this year to the Richmond (VA) show. The first year I went to see TSO, Chris Caffery (guitarist) had tripped over a cable in Hampton (VA) two days before and badly injured his foot, but was still going - his trademark, running into the audience and playing a guitar solo during the grand finale/reprise of Sarahevo 12/24, still went
